Blackbeard's Headless Body Swam Around His Ship!
The Fact or Fiction Behind PiratesBook - 2016
"The pirates we see in movies and on TV are very different from those that actually once sailed the seas. This book takes an engaging look at pirate mythology and assigns a "fact" or "phony" evaluation to many of the things commonly associated with the swashbuckling sailors. Did pirates really make people "walk the plank" or carry around treasure maps? Loaded with fact boxes and explanations of how many of these pirate myths originated, readers will love discovering more about real pirates."--Publisher website.
